I found a patter in a bead fantasies book for this pretty ring a long time ago.  I've always liked it but never got around to buying the beads to make it.  Finally one day I remembered and made the ring.  It turned out really pretty but was too small by just a little.  So, I made another one with an extra motif added, and its too big. Come On! I mean really.....still, I like them and I think they need to be seen

here's a picture of me modeling the too tight one....uncomfortable but it fits

Still cute, but I will never wear it

Those rings are darling. How frustrating that they don't fit!

Have you considered either using larger sized beads with the same number of motifs as the too-small one to make it a wee bit bigger and/or using smaller sized beads with the additional motif to make the too-large one a wee bit smaller? It might just do the trick.

Good luck!

I am having a hard time finding the beads in anything smaller than a 3mm (I need 2mm) I tried it with seed beads but it didn't turn out like I liked. No worry though, they will probably fit someone!
